Unsatisfied customer: Complaint on incompetent technicians and inefficient appointment scheduling

This complaint will be share in several social media site in the hope that the quality of service can be improved. 

We recently moved from an apartment to a private house, and we decided to transfer the (landline) Verizon phone line to the new place as well.  The landline is important to my mom since she doesn't want a cell phone.  I had rescheduled the appointment 3 times and I still have not seen a technician yet.  In first 2 appointments, apparently they were not on the technician's schedule even though the operator said she scheduled.  I found out on the day of the appointment when I called to double check if anyone is still coming to my place.  The third appointment is the most upsetting.  The Technician was supposed to come today 8am-12pm, however, the technician never showed up and just left a voice mail on my cell phone @ 8:20am.  He said "This is the Verizon Technician.  I need access inside the house.  If you need to reschedule, please call 1800-Verizon".  Come to the house then you have access.  He never bother to ring the door bell or knock on the door.  However, he reported to his supervisor and recorded that there was no one is home.  I found out this information when I spend 40 mins on the phone with the another Verizon operator.  My mom was home, and she was enjoying her breakfast and looking at the front porch the WHOLE time (8am-9am).  No technician walk close to our property.  We wasted 3 days just because of incompetent technicians and inefficient appointment scheduling.  Not only the incompetent technician won't be coming back, WE HAVE TO RESCHEDULE AGAIN!!!!  4TH TIME for a landline...

The technician should be accountable for his action of laziness and being irresponsible, as well as the inefficient scheduling system.  Verizon and your technicians have caused us missed 3 days of work and COUNTING.  I used to love Verizon service, I have my cell phone, internet, and TV service, but we are very disgusted by the service quality.  After this incident, I would not recommand any verizon product to my friends, basketball players, their parents,  and work colleagues.
